Home Care Packages

What is a Home care package?

The term “home care package” refers to the subsidised funds allocated by the federal government; once assessed these funds aid you with your required forms of support and medical care.

The levels of care

There are four tiers of these packages- depending on your level of care you will be designated to one of these levels.

  • Level 1 supports people with basic care needs
  • Level 2 supports people with low level care needs
  • Level 3 supports people with intermediate care needs
  • Level 4 supports people with high level care needs


These packages are based upon your individual support and medical needs that you require in your day to day life. Once your package is designated you will begin to receive your required aid from your chosen care provider (such as Royalty Scope Nursing Services).
